I woke this morning to a gentle quacking coming from her room.
That cracks me up. What a great way to start a morning right.

Great picture, vagriller!

Finally, some good news in the mudbug department. HH and daughter have both been sick as dogs for the past entire week with strep and strep/bronchitis (HH), fevers, many garbage bags full of used kleenex, and misery.

However, the mood brightened yesterday when daughter found out she has been accepted to participate in the People to People Student Ambassadors program. She will be visiting England, Ireland, and Wales for 3 weeks this coming summer. I am very excited for her and waaaaaaaay jealous (but still smiling).

Talked with my mom this morning and she remembered her Scottish grandfather, who lived in the finished attic in her parents house... he used to sit up there, read encyclopedias, drink whiskey and pee out the bedroom window. He just didn't feel like walking down the stairs. The window was right over the kitchen door so her parents (also Scottish) installed one of those metal awnings above the door so people wouldn't be hit by the unexpected! I'd heard that story when I was growing up but it had been years since I was reminded of it.

That's a good one, Fraidy. Reminded me of my own grandfather who would pop a beer at 8 a.m. after my grandmother died.

That type of thing is cute at 7-8am, but at 5 am it's not as cute!
